Mentorship Program

AEP is thrilled to announce the inauguration of our mentorship program. The AEP Mentorship Program offers an opportunity to be both mentee and mentor at the same time and has been designed to provide maximum flexibility and opportunities for our members. The AEP Mentorship Program consists of both programmed and at-will opportunities. The at-will option will allow mentors to search our member database for potential mentors who have designated themselves to be interested in mentoring. The programmed option will guide either 1-1 Mentor/Mentee pairs or peer groups on a 9-session curriculum together. We know that business is better with diverse teams and AEP strongly believes that mentoring can be too.

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! For our programmed mentorship opportunity, you will be able to sign up through the AEP website: Once registration ends, anyone interested in the programmed mentorship opportunity will be assigned to a 1-1 Mentor/Mentee Pair or a Peer Mentoring Group by the AEP Mentorship Committee. Sessions will be held (in-person or online) nine times, approximately once per month – choosing dates and times that work best for the group members. Groups or pairs will be assigned based on the registration information you provide. The AEP Mentorship Program also offer a great way to build community both one-on-one and in a smaller group setting. Some groups/pairs will meet in person with social distancing as the public health situation allows, and other groups will meet online through skype, google hangouts, and other conferencing tools, depending on participants’ preferences indicated at the time of registration.

For the at-will mentorship opportunity, please log in to our membership directory ( and from there, you can sort for fellow members that are interested in being a mentor and/or mentee and might share some interests of yours. While there, don’t forget to review your profile and update all of your information!
